I was having the same standby and usage time under Settings -> General -> Usage and found a report like this when connecting my iPhone 5S to Xcode: Incident Identifier: 941F209C-EC9B-49B8-B796-F9B07543E9ED CrashReporter Key: 182e9824ae5047b9b2f2fe5e88777bc89fd945ec Date: 2014-04-19 02:48:06 -0300 OS Version: iPhone OS 7.1 (11D167) ...

I had a similar problem with my iPhone 5s and my wife's iPhone 5, the standby time and usage time was the same, indicating that the devices never went to sleep. I hocked my 5s to Xcode Instruments and found in my case the top 3 CPU hungry process are CommCenter, locationd and blackboardd; after ruling out Instruments' own DTmobileIS. The usage was low, less ...

This is a good compilation and juxtaposition of the two power management modes: standby vs autopoweroff, but the conclusions made above are not entirely correct IMHO. I have a Macbook Pro 15" mid 2012 (non-SSD), and it supports both standby and autopoweroff. The articles quoted above do not show that MacBook Pro mid 2012 supports the standby mode; however, ...

You say, the battery status is 4/5 lights and the magsafe status is initially orange and gets green after a short wait, this means that the battery isn't charged after all, although it isn't completely charged. When you boot with power supply and click at the battery indicator left the clock in the menu-bar, does it say anything about needing to be replaced ...

So the fan doesn't even spin up when attempting to boot from battery? First thing to try is resetting the SMC: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964 Any chance you can try with another battery? Although from what you've described it sounds fine. You might be looking at the logic board as the fault.

Usually OS X machines will go to sleep when they run low on battery. The fact that yours didn't suggests a battery fault. I used to be a technician and I saw clicking affected when the battery swells (as the battery sits directly on top of the trackpad assembly). Does the click feel normal (still get the normal click noise when you press the trackpad)? If ...

The iPad, having a bigger battery, is designed to pull up to 2.1 Amps at 5V. Most chargers are designed to be 5V at a max of 500mA. That 500mA is divided into both charging the iPad and running it at the same time. If you have the iPad on and doing stuff, most of the power being supplied is going to running, which will make charging take forever. When ...

Not an Apple-approved answer, but to solve your root cause (to train battery regularly when your MBP is always at your desk), consider surge protectors with scheduled on/off (example, about $40 in Russia). You can program it to turn off in the beginning of night, and to turn on about 4am so that battery is charged back by the time you show up at your desk. ...

In general, dynamic wallpapers drain the battery faster than still wallpapers. The amount of drainage is dependent on the wallpaper itself (whether it has many bright colors, is graphic intensive) and how it's programmed (CPU and memory usage, etc.). There are ones that are better than others. Also, how often are you on your home screen where you see that ...

You seem to have a dead battery, you can check the status by going to Apple Menu > About this Mac > System Information > System Report (10.7 or later, similar but different on older OS) Your battery could die for a lot of reasons, it's simply been used a lot, or it's been damaged, or used in environmental conditions that are outside of it's ...

Because you explain the problem perfectly, and in short: The battery does not charge, and your Macbook does only work with MagSafe attached There's only one option what could be the problem... The battery is dead, let me explain you why: Your battery is ignored somehow, and your Macbook uses power directly from the MagSafe adapter. If you couldn't ...

Looks like your battery is dead, go get a new one. Depending on where you live you need to get a new one from Apple or you might find cheaper batteries from a 3rd party vendor.

All the information you get from fancy 3d party is already in your system (that is where they get it from anyway). Open your About This Mac, more info, system report and find Power: It will tell you all about your battery. It looks like this on my system:

Actually thanks for your detailed report one can see it is the application Boom preventing the sleep mode. Try one of the following by updating the app Boom to 1.8.1, or disable it to test. The 1.8.1 has some fixes that might help: --- Audio clipping(cutting out) issue is now fixed. --- Kernel task consumption issue has been fixed. Now it functions the ...

Checking Battery Health Actually there is a little trick that might work for you.
